Bg2 Bxg4 3. c4 { This is White's idea. Now there is some pressure against the b7 and d5 pawns. } { [%csl Rd5,Rb7][%cal Yc4d5,Yg2d5,Yd5b7] } 3... c6! 4. cxd5 cxd5 5. Qb3 { This move creates a double attack against black pawns. } { [%csl Rd5,Rb7][%cal Yb3d5,Yg2d5,Yb3b7] } 5... e6?? { This is a big blunder and it's in fact the most popular move! More than 50K of players did this blunder. } 6. Qa4+ $18 { And Black is losing a piece. } { [%csl Rg4,Re8][%cal Ya4g4,Ya4e8] } *
